The New Edition of "Living Shores" - George & Margot Branch Saturday 08 December 2018

The New Edition of Living Shores George Margot Branch

George and Margot Branch will present a talk on their new edition of the celebrated book, Living Shores. George and Margo Branch describe themselves as a “beach bums par excellence”. In actual fact they are prolific writers and teachers in the marine community of South Africa. To their scientific skills they each bring an illustrative component. George brings photography and Margot brings art, and together they produce beautiful books to educate and enrich our lives.

Originally published in 1981, Living Shores was for many years the standard reference for marine science students but was also embraced by a popular market for its fascinating insights into marine and coastal habitats and the life they support. After a long absence, this classic has been revived and thoroughly reworked to incorporate the many dramatic changes that our oceans and coasts have undergone over the past few decades.

This book is the first of a two volume set, and examines the different marine ecosystems and how humankind interacts with them. It discusses the evolution of the sea and continents and looks at the ecology of coastal systems, including intertidal zones, beaches, dunes, estuaries, islands, kelp forests and reefs. The book unpacks the relationship between humans and the marine environment, and the consequences of harvesting and mining to meet our needs. It also addresses the impact of climate change, and highlights what can be done to protect our environment.

Richly supported by full-colour photography and numerous explanatory illustrations, diagrams and graphs, this book will prove invaluable to students and teachers but will also appeal to anyone with a fascination for nature and our marine world in particular. George and Margot's books – great as gifts – will be on sale after their talk.

Nature Art Workshop at Caledon Botanical Garden with Leli Hoch Saturday 08 December 2018

Nature Art Workshop at Caledon Botanical Garden with Leli Hoch

Nature Art Workshop @ Caledon Botanical Garden

We will be sketching with flowers, painting with clouds, writing with water, being assisted by the elements, tracing the path of a falling leaf, marrying sounds, textures, colours and smells.
By means of sometimes the smallest intervention, living natural space is re-organised and put under tension. Of course only for a finite period of time. One day or the next minute, the ephemeral artwork is wiped away, undone by nature without leaving a trace.

The workshop offers:
• Introduction into nature art and its history
• Introduction into the basic elements and principles of art
• Practical exercises
• Working with easy artistic concepts alone and in a small group
• You create your own artwork
• Combining nature art with modern technology

Where: Caledon Botanical Garden, N2
Date: Saturday 8 Dec 2018
Time: 15h30 to 18:30
Duration: + / - 3h
What to bring: pocket knife or scissors, drinking water, cellphone camera
Cool drinks and snacks are provided
Cost: R 280 per person
